Pediatric Dentistry in Farmington Hills

Dental Care for the Whole Family


If you want to enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile as an adult, it’s essential to practice excellent oral hygiene from an early age. At our practice, Dr. Shlafer and our friendly dental team will work closely with your child to establish good habits that will protect their teeth well into adulthood.

What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is the practice of providing dental care for children, starting when they’re infants and continuing through their adolescent years. It’s crucial that young patients see an experienced dentist who can show them the importance of oral health from an early age.

When Should Kids Have Their First Appointment?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, you should take your child to a dentist when their first tooth emerges, typically between six months to a year after they’re born.

To prevent future health complications, your child should definitely see a pediatric dentist no later than their first birthday.

We recommend bringing your child with you to some of your dental appointments so they can get used to the environment. This will help them feel comfortable in our office and prevent them from developing a fear of the dentist.

Dr. Shlafer and our team maintain a positive, easygoing demeanor to help your child stay relaxed. By making an impression from an early age, we can help your child see the importance of dental care to their overall health.

What Services Does a Pediatric Dentist Provide?

When we care for younger patients, we do more than just clean their teeth -- we teach them how to maintain a healthy smile for life. By doing this, we can help them avoid the social embarrassment of decayed or missing teeth in the future.

When you bring your child to our office, Dr. Shlafer and our team will thoroughly examine their mouth and polish their teeth. If any issues are detected, we’ll take the time to explain them in detail to your child and determine an ideal treatment solution.

Depending on your child’s age and the severity of their condition, treatments can range from dental sealants to porcelain crowns.
